I'm a little late to the party today -- for some personal reasons -- but I thought I'd chime in on the two roster moves that have taken place since the Orioles dropped three of four to the Angels in Anaheim.
Can't be surprised that Chris Ray is hurting, both because of his erratic performance and because guys who have serious elbow surgery often come up with soreness in other areas after returning to the mound. It's too bad, because he's a really great young man and you'd have to believe his career is in serious danger. It was painful to watch him struggle after everything he's already been through.
I like Kam Mickolio, who will take Ray's place, and not just because he's a nice relief prospect. He also reminds me of the Daniel Stern character in the great cycling movie Breaking Away.
